It’s not easy to quit drinking alcohol for an entire 9 months of your life, but the alternative is having a baby with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome.

Abnormalities from Fetal Alcohol Syndrome include:

  • Small head and brain
  • Short stature, small eyes
  • Cleft palate
  • Irritability, aggression, social & behavioral issues
  • Signs of both physical and mental retardation

It’s no small feat to stay sober during pregnancy, but your baby’s life and whole future depends on it. If a pregnant woman drinks, then the baby drinks as well. In a fetus, alcohol is considered a teratogen. A teratogen is a toxic substance for a fetus. The only way to keep your baby from this tragic, lifelong disability is to quit alcohol while pregnant.
